This is so typical of politicians to attempt to sidestep the law with the use of PAC entities. It's no wonder we question the integrity of our government leaders.

"But the Huntsman campaign said repeatedly the money raised by the PAC was not used to help Huntsman's White House run."

Of course it was used to help his White House run. Why else was the PAC even organized? The money can't go directly to the candidate or to pay campaign expenses but everything the PAC does is geared toward helping the candidate.
The courts have made super PACs legal so why tapdance around what they do and try to obfuscate the obvious? It only makes voters more skepitcal of the whole process.

He will need alot more than that to take on Obamas magical mystery money machine! Try a billion or more. Money wins elections, not substance.

remember the last election when Obama raised much more than anybody ever had? It came from questionable sources and he repaid the contributions with redistributed tax money via bailouts.

The last part of your discourse shows us just how in lock step you are with this President...class envy! Get those rich people! Even if those rich people are the ones telling you to get those rich people.

They need to put a limit of, say $100 for any person or company to put in as a contribution.

Big money contributions are given because they want something in return.

In my world; No foreign contributions to a candidate. And in the case of a State Representative, No contributions from people living outside of (that) district and for Senators...All contributors need to be from that Senator's State.

If you do not agree with this, Do you have a problem with those in foreign nations voting for our President? or Representatives??. Or those outside of a district or state being able to Vote for your representative(s).

When politicians takes money from outside sources, Whom is he representing? Big Contributions, What are they expecting? Are his other constituents getting equall representation?

So your going to deny that Obama comes from a place called Chicago where you pay to play, and that he doesn't bring the same MO to Washington. A tiger that can change his stripes. Now thats rich.
